Apply Now for the Universitas 21 Sustainable Micro-internship!

UMD is working with Universitas 21 (U21) to offer a free online, international micro-internship opportunity for students around the world in December 2021 and/or January 2022. 

The U21 Sustainable Micro-internships allow you to work with your fellow students from across the globe, sharing knowledge and expertise while immersing yourself in a commercial organization. Not only will you form quick partnerships with sustainability-minded students around the world, but you’ll also challenge your abilities while developing key skills enabling you to thrive in the modern workplace.

Over the two-week program, you will be presented with an ongoing sustainability challenge from your host employer and work in groups (spanning 18 counties and 19 time zones) to innovate a solution and how to communicate this with senior stakeholders. The internships involve two live 2.5 hour online sessions at the start and end of the two-week program, with the rest of the project work undertaken flexibly, online around your other commitments.

These two-week micro-internships are thematically aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nations.
